Interagency Bison Management Plan Partners To Host Open House on Changes to Plan
Updated April 7, 2011The Interagency Bison Management Plan partners will host an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 14 at the Yellowstone Association Building in Gardiner (308 Park Street, formerly the Cecil’s Building).
The purpose of the open house is to provide an overview of adaptive management changes recently made to the IBMP in the Gardiner area and answer questions about those changes.
The IBMP is a cooperative, multi-agency effort that guides bison and brucellosis risk management in and around Yellowstone National Park. It is an adaptive plan that anticipates future adjustments based upon the best available science, research, monitoring, new information, and experience from field operations.
The cooperating agencies are the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the Montana Department of Livestock, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the InterTribal Buffalo Council, the Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribes, and the Nez Perce Tribe.
